What is it good for?
In recent years, scientific literature has investigated the effect of a number of compounds present in chilli peppers on pain, health, weight loss and athletic performance.
Capsaicinoids and capsinoids, the most studied of which is a molecule known as capsaicin, are used in the supplement industry with interesting results.
On physical and sporting performance, capsaicin may be able to increase the total training volume and intensity achieved in strength or endurance training by improving muscle contractile function and dissipating fatigue
Capsaicin is able to interact with some of the receptors linked to nociception and, therefore, to the sensation of discomfort and discomfort. Thus, the effect of capsaicin would be to attenuate fatigue and discomfort in the face of maximum intensity effort, thus avoiding the limiting effect of the nervous system.
On the other hand, capsaicin could stimulate receptors in muscle tissue responsible for calcium release. Therefore, by means of these two mechanisms, capsaicin would act on the correct functioning of muscle contraction, the main limiting factor in strength training and at certain times in endurance sports.
On the other hand, some of the effects documented in the scientific literature have to do with its effect on improving power peaks, resistance to pain and better use of energy substrates. In addition, its use could have a positive effect on the management of body composition in some contexts, which has led to its use in some formulations for the improvement of body composition.
On the other hand, due to the possible irritant effect of capsaicin in its various forms, some new forms of administration have become popular in recent years, one example being phenylcapsaicin.
Phenylcapsaicin is a highly bioavailable microencapsulation which significantly increases the concentration of capsaicin in the blood with a release that is ideal for consumption before training. Thus, unlike other forms of capsaicin, phenylcapsaicin (Axivite ®) achieves a significant concentration in the blood, without generating stinging or burning, but delivering an acute effect after administration unlike other microencapsulated formulations.
- Improved muscle contraction.
- Delaying effect on discomfort and pain in a series.
- Increase in total volume, tonnage or effective repetitions.
- Burning effect after decreased consumption.
- Optimal pre-workout blood concentration
- Supports fat loss.
What dose to take?
Adapt the dosage to your needs and tolerance, the doses to be consumed range from 1 to 4 capsules 40 minutes before training.
This product contains phenylcapsaicin.
